Calling all research teams
MiFID II presents in-house research teams with a seismic change in the way their output is distributed and valued.
Unbundling means research must be purchased by the buy-side with clear value metrics embedded. In short, you can no longer just be an add-on to the Sales team but must now justify your existence in the full transparent glare of quantitative rather than just qualitative performance related management information.
For some teams this removal of the institutional comfort blanket might be seen as a threat, to others it presents a huge opportunity to branch out on their own and deliver research to a wider audience willing to pay because its great research rather linked to a Sales team’s unaligned interests.
